    THIS!!

    I've been lurking this thread for a looooong time. As well as being active in spurts. It's excellent and full of great people. There's just no pleasing some people. Don't let it get you down!

    Perhaps the negative Nancys should remember that this thread does warn of the off topicness and one ought to go elsewhere rather than trying to change something that's been on the DISboards for a lot longer than they have. Just my 2 cents mind you.

    I'm not booked yet but it will more than likely be July. DD is in the ICP and we will be coming over to visit her. We don't know what dates DH will be able to get off work yet but hopefully we won't have to wait too long :).

    Dee - you do an AMAZING job keeping up the BC/YC thread. It is rare that anyone's question gets lost but it is an ongoing thread so sometimes a poster MIGHT have to ask twice.

    This is the friendliest thread on the DIS (IMHO). Lots of us do share the love of BC/YC and through that have become "Dis Friends" who actually care about each other.

    To the poster who asked about staying CL and room requests - they are only requests. You can make them through Cl but really there are not guarantees. I've only ever made a few requests and made them when making our reservation and then just re-stated them when we were making other plans through IPO.


    Dee - again - thank you for all you do!

    Yes the first page of you thread is helpful. But I do not know why off topic posts are allowed. This should be solely YC BC comments. Now, so I am not a hypocrite I will let you know my review of YC CL. YC CL was one of the best I have been to. I love the fact that they have a refrigerators for their sodas instead of a bucket. The food was tasty and plentiful. The cm's were nice and accommodating. The room was the same as a non cl room at yc. The lounge was actually kept open after 10pm which I loved so I could get a cup of tea, sodas, coffee and some snacks were left out. I liked having private access to the lounge on the elevator. I didn't like boardwalk for that reason as you could be on the 3rd or 4th flr. Turn down service was nice and the mints were delicious. It was too cold for SAB and HH was set to be opening a few days after our departure, but the menu was out and I am excited to try it this weekend. Any other CL questions you may have please pm and I will help you as much as I can. I look forward to staying at YC CL again, this coming weekend. :cool1:

    Thank ou for all the responses regarding mac and cheese and especially for the warm welcome, I just get nervous trying a new resort. How long does it take to walk from SAB to Picabu and are you able to get food to go? Thanks again!

    Here Here to the community of people on the BC/YC thread :banana:!!! This is why I keep coming back, I like the social aspect and meeting people from all over!! That's the reason I love that my son plays travel hockey!! Meeting kids from all over the country and Canada and making friendships :hug:!! I live vicariously through those with their snippets of TRs :yay:!!! Yes, it is tedious to weed through the thread, but oh well, it passes the time when I'm sitting in the ice rink during practice, or waiting for the train that is slowly going by!! I don't read too many books, and so currently I'm reading the exciting book of Beach and Yacht FAQ :laughing: It's exciting, suspenseful, and motivating :love:!!!

    My favorite view is the woods view. It is quiet on that side and there is a nice sidewalk that takes you close to the Epcot entrance. :)

    Thanks Ninja Mom - my replies and further questions in GREEN.


    Thanks again NinjaMom! :hippie: I enjoy my pool time, but don't care for the quiet pools, but like a certain level of non-chaos.

    Hmmm... I've never stayed in the Villa's so I have no idea what to ask for or if I should just take the luck of the draw. I'm not a big fan of wooded areas so I don't know if I'd be ok with that area since I'll be in the room by myself... All of my trips this year are solo trips and I'm a chicken!!

    Thank you for the quick response though and I will check the area out when I'm at Disney in just 25 short days :banana::banana::banana:

    Thank you for your comments about the Yacht Club.

    I think that the off topic responses have been allowed because many, many people on this board enjoy it and haven't complained. As others have said, it is the chit chat and friendly comments that keep many coming back here.

    That is why I devote so much time (and believe me it is at least a couple of hours each day, sometimes more) to this thread and the people who hang out here. Everyone who volunteers info and answers questions here does it because we are trying to be helpful and because it is fun.

    I hope that helps you to understand the underlying vibe here.

    I'm sorry we missed your original question, but even with all the banter, we generally take care of business on this thread!

    Dee~ You should be proud of the work that you do on this thread. :goodvibes I don't comment a whole lot, but have found the majority of the information I need on the first few pages.

    When I have asked a question, I have always seen it answered quickly or even bumped up by you if there was not answer and the question got "buried". :hug:

    You've also kept up with my changes, which is no easy feat! ;)

    I like the family vibe over on this thread for sure, I have always felt that this is one of the few "safe" threads where there isn't snarkiness and negativity.

    Anyway, just my two cents! And I hope to gather lots of material for you to use in the thread when we hit YC CL in April!!! :banana:

    I checked the WDW website and it looks like the bookable choices are courtyard, pool, woods and BC view. Courtyard and BC view rooms are probably the side of the villas that face the Solarium and the BC driveway, although I'm just guessing here. :)

    This is a great picture of the pool view taken by MickeyNut1. To the left of the pool house building is a canal. It is a great way for Disney to disguise the fact that there is a parking lot on the other side of the pool. ;)

    The pool is great by the way if you a nice quiet place to hang out. We enjoyed it a lot on our last trip. :)

    By the way, I've never made a room request before I came to this forum. I didn't really know that you could. And we have gotten really nice rooms and several upgrades anyway. All three of our villa stays have had a woods view, my very favorite view.

    Cool I like the pool view. I'm booked through my DVC points so I'll call them and put a request in and then just see what happens!

    Thanks again for your response!
